Facts about my hair:
Color: Brown (with perhaps a few greys)
Length: Just below the shoulder
Hair dryers are a staple - for any hairstyle and in Canada an essential in the winter. I use may hairdryer almost on a daily basis (yes know it's terrible) - which why purchasing a good quality one is a must.
The box claims the "grill that is infused with Argan Oil" and because of this it "revives and nourish dry, damaged hair". The ceramic grill "provides even heat distribution and emits far-infrared heat for gentle styling, as well as natural ions that reduce frizz and static for smoother, shinier hair".
The dryer itself has:
- 6 heat settings and a cold "shot" setting
- ceramic grills infused with Moroccan argan oil
- 8' power cord
To use the pick, you need to apply the argan oil to the "wick" strip in the center of the pik. Then run the pik thru your hair starting from roots to the ends. You want to be careful not to let the pick sit too long at your roots or they will get too oily.
The actual straightening pik? it's an interesting concept. I have used it a handful of times but the actual process I find time consuming and there is a bit of a learning curve. I can't imagine working this contraption with long hair - because my arms are barely long enough to run through medium length hair!
A few tips for using the pik:
- make sure your hair is knot-free before you start
- work in sections to avoid tangles
- only use a few drops of the argan oil - and let it set
- start at the roots to create volume but work quickly so they don't get oily
Having said all of that - I would recommend this dryer - as for the pik? I think you can skip it. I think you can get the same results by applying some argan oil to your hair before drying.
